Documenting the Damp Dining Room : Part 1 – An introduction

21-08-17 - Downstairs Rear Reception 0015
Above : As of 21/08/2017 the limewash has carbonated in the dry areas but remained translucent where there is damp

This is the start of a series of posts which will show photos in chronological order,  documenting the progression of damp and drying out that has occurred in the time between limewashing the room at the beginning of August 2017 through to the middle of September. The external cement render at the base of the outside wall & a strip of the concrete floor that abutted the wall were removed on the 4th September.

You can find links for each area below. I have kept them as separate posts since the documentation is fairly extensive.
